Angry, but can’t put your finger on it?

ITALY/

Blog Guy, it seems to me the American people are starting to send a signal to big government and Wall Street, that we’re not going to take it anymore. We’re fed up with business as usual. We’re saying…

odonnell this 220Oh, please. You call a couple of primary election surprises and some Tea Party rallies a signal?

Er, sure. What do YOU consider a clear signal, Blog Guy?

Try the marble sculpture they just put up in front of the Milan Stock Exchange. Now those Italians, THEY know how to send a signal!

Yikes! That’s some sculpture, Blog Guy. What’s the name of it? I bet it’s a four-letter word?

Eat, Pray, Read?

FASHION/

Blog Guy, you’re smiling today. You must have seen something amusing, huh?

USA/I sure did. You know how sometimes I imply that fashion models aren’t, you know, geniuses? Like maybe they don’t have to think a lot to do that job?

SPAIN/

Blog Guy, you went too far in your blog a couple of weeks ago when you implied that people in Spain aren’t happy unless they are “killing, maiming, torturing or frightening poor animals.”

Let me get this straight. You had to go back two whole weeks to catch me going too far? I must be slipping.

CLINTON

“Okay, big smile now, Chelsea!”

“Jeez Mom, I don’t think posing in these comical hats is such a good idea.”

“Think about it, Ma. It’s only the year 2000. You’re still young.

Are you wearing an AWNING, Lamar?

TRINIDAD/Okay marketing staff, we’re riding the wave now!

Our recent decision to sell more fashions by inventing new items and creating a demand for them has paid off in solid gold with the Rube Tube and the Skanktop, but we’re not stopping there.

Ladies and gentlemen, I now give you the first wearable art.

It’s a colorful piece of canvas for men, with lots of straps and buckles, and you can wear it, sleep under it or hang it on the wall.

You must be the Head Bear

BRITAIN/

Blog Guy, I need you to settle a bet with the guy who’s asphalting my nephew’s driveway.

Yes, yes, fine, that’s my sole purpose for living, to settle bets. What is it this time?

The case of the missing roller skater…

Blog Guy, do you handle missing persons cases?

I’ve never done one before, but how hard could it be? Who’s missing?

And you call yourself the Man of Steel?

Blog Guy, can you please settle a bet with my neighbor’s proctologist?

superman 300Sure, because that’s what I’m here for, to settle stupid bets.

Thanks, that’s what I thought. What would happen if Superman flew into the earth at 4,000 miles per hour?

What do you think would happen?

Well, I say he would go all the way through and come out on the other side, but the doctor says he would knock the earth out of its orbit and destroy every living thing, instead.

picasso this 490

Blog Guy, I heard on the radio that a Picasso painting just sold for more than $106 million! They held up a photo of it on the radio news, but I was driving and couldn’t look.

Yeah, you’re talking about Picasso’s “Nude, Green Leaves and Bust.” It sold yesterday.
